Now that’s how you lip sync. Abbi and Ilana from Comedy Central’s Broad City can do no wrong in my eyes, and it’s partially due to stuff like this. Abbi absolutely dominates the lip sync game in this video. 100% effort throughout the entire performance. She might have even been Jennifer Hudson in another life. I’m not ruling that out. The only thing that could’ve made this performance better would have been an appearance from ‘Val’.
“Infuriatingly talented”. Towards the end of the trailer for ‘I Am Chris Farley’, the documentary about the tragic comedic actor Chris Farley, Lorne Michaels describes a small group of people he’s worked with in show business as ”infuriatingly talented”. There’s no doubt in my mind that Chris Farley is on that list, and he may even be at the top. He was a force of nature whenever he was on screen, whether it was SNL, the movie screen or even a talk show. He was like a bright light, in that every time you saw him, all your attention was drawn to him. Personally, he’s one of my favorite comedic actors ever, and to think he had such an impact and died at 33 goes to show you how special he was. The documentary features of a who’s who of comedy legends and personal friends of Farley’s giving their insight into his life and career, including Adam Sandler, David Spade, Dan Aykroyd and Jay Mohr. The world television premiere is set for August 10th at 10pm on Spike TV, and you can go to iamchrisfarley.com for all the details and updates.
If you’ve never seen celebrities and Jimmy Fallon do lip sync battle on ‘The Tonight Show’, now you have a chance to literally watch a show all about it. Jimmy Fallon is taking over the world one TV appearance at a time, and now his skills will be on display at Spike TV. The trailer for ‘Lip Sync Battle’ is pretty wonderful, and above everything else, features John Krasinski in a Tina Turner shimmering outfit that makes my heart explode with joy. You also have fan favorites like The Rock, Chrissy Teigen and Anna Kendrick showing off their skills and LL Cool J as the host. Ladies love Cool James, and I’m going to love this show. It premieres April 2nd so set yo DVR’s.
We are still just in the rumor stages of this development, but WrestleZone.com’s Mike Killam also cited sources relaying the same information. Per Killam, Impact Wrestling will be canceled if it doesn’t get picked up by a new network “in a very short amount of time.”
This is potentially devastating news for TNA president Dixie Carter.
In hindsight, maybe this wasn’t their smartest move.
This is kind of sad. I never really enjoyed TNA on any level, and Twitter is having a field day with #TNAGOTCANCELLEDBECAUSE, but it’s sad for one large reason: competition. The Attitude Era was so great because WWE and WCW had to be great, or else they would fold. If you watch WCW during it’s final year (s), you can see why it folded: horrible, almost embarrassing storylines coupled with aging wrestlers taking the spotlight from hungry up and comers will never end well. But during the Monday Night Wars, wrestling was a must see event on a weekly basis. In WWE’s heyday, they ran an empty arena match featuring The Rock and Mick Foley during the SuperBowl halftime show. Can you imagine any wrestling promotion running an event against the SuperBowl now? But that’s how popular WWE, and wrestling as a whole, was back then. TNA never came close to the threat WCW was, but competition is always necessary, even in wrestling. WWE has one of their most talented rosters ever, and if the writers can get their shit together, it won’t matter what other promotions start up or continue. But WWE has a tendency to take the lazy route in regards to storytelling, especially when there isn’t another dog in the race. Let’s hope that doesn’t end up being the case now that TNA is falling fast.
